In the third episode of a series for SBS Australia (Hindi channel), I share my experiences of traveling alone in India and discuss whether I have felt safe.
Many people are surprised or confused as to why I would leave a life in London to live in India. There are many common perceptions about India around the world, most are negative so it’s for that precise reason that I decided to moved to India to help challenge these misconceptions based on my own experience of the country.
There’s a side to travelling that people don’t talk about. They definitely don’t post about it on social media. Just because you’re on an amazing adventure, doesn’t mean you won’t sometimes feel down or unhappy. I’ve been there, a lot, so here’s what I do to stop the travel blues ruining my trips!
Females traveling alone are forever being told to ‘stay safe’ or to ‘be careful’. Not only is this unhelpful, it’s annoying too. Knowing what we can do to stay safe in a practical way is much more helpful!
